Mental health is everyone's business
One in five Tasmanians will have a mental illness during their lifetime - it may be you or someone you know in your workplace, family or local community.
Mental illness is a health and wellbeing issue that can affect how people feel, think, behave and interact with others. Anglicare has a number of services to support people who have mental illness.
The Personal Helpers and Mentors program is for people recovering from severe, long-term mental illness. The Recovery program provides one-on-one support for people with a diagnosed mental illness.
Pathways in Launceston is a group that meets regularly to socialise and participate in activities. Club Haven in Devonport is a social and support network for people recovering from mental illness.
Anglicare also offers services to support the family and friends of people who have a mental illness. Information and assistance is available from the Family Mental Health and Support Service.
We can also work with you to arrange a planned break with Our Time.
Young people who have a parent with a mental illness can participate in fun, educational and supportive activities at Taz Kids Clubs.
Anglicare has Residential Recovery Services at Curraghmore in Devonport and Rocherlea in Launceston.
